Perfection vs Me

This is my number 442 post. Do you think I can post 58 more times to make it to 500 by the end of the year, probably, but probably not. That is a lot of writing and reading to do by December 31 and I just don't know if I have it in me. That would also mean writing more than one a day. I think I've talked myself out of doing it but I do know that by January something I will post my 500th entry.

I had all kinds of plans yesterday and today. I was going to finally put away the mounds of laundry, my laundry that I have done but not put away in the past few weeks. I hate laundry. I hate folding, hanging and matching socks. I like living out of baskets and piles but it just doesn't work very well most of the time and The Hubby really frowns at it. His closet is perfect. He does his own laundry and ironing and he is the whole perception of perfection. I am not, never will be and don't want to be. I cannot live like that. We have separate closets and I like it like that.
The Hubby's

Jill's Mess

We are in the middle of working with our architect on plans to expand the master bath and closet area. When we did the gutting of our house and total remodel the bath area was not touched and has not been touched since the 70's. YUCK! We are going to add on to the house and punch out into the backyard with a deck, hot tub and a workout area in the bathroom add-on. I want my own closet but The Hubby says he doesn't see a problem with a huge closet for us both. Do you see a problem. I do. He said that if I kept it clean then no problem. I am not going to live with his constant nagging that I have dropped a pair of socks on the floor. I am who I am and I am a mess, deal with it. I need a door so I can close it. What will probably happen though is that I will be able to keep it clean as we are designing it to fit MY needs that have not been met before. Now he wants a washer and dryer combo with an ironing board in the middle of it so he doesn't have to carry his laundry to the huge laundry room we already have. Whatever. I will keep all posted on this ongoing battle. Are we having fun yet!

Thanks for joining my followers. And for writing a fun blog. I vote that you should have your own closet, with a door, that has every need meeting thing in it that you can imagine. I'll check back to see how it all turns out!
